This post will make you go aww.
Two Sydney sisters couldn’t resist creating their own brand of sheepskin bears after growing up with one’s of their own – that’s how Flatout Bears came to be. When I was looking for something cuddly for our new baby boxes I couldn’t resist. Australian made – tick, Meaningful story – tick, Quality product – tick, Must-have – tick! These bears were ticking all the boxes for Gladys.
Each bear is basically a cut out of 100% Australian lambskin/wool into a bear shape and sewn together with two button eyes and nose, and a ribbon around the bear’s neck that can be removed. They feel so soft and luxurious under your fingers, so soft you can’t stop patting them because it feels so nice on your hands. No wonder they often become a child’s favourite companion!
The Flatout Bear sisters have done well with their little bear venture, their bears have made their way into famous hands all over the world, with names like Sarah Jessica Parker, Princess Mary and funny guy Owen Wilson (and loads more) you can see the star studded A list here.
Another nice thing about Flatout Bears they are committed to helping kids in Cambodia. According to their website Prue (Co-founder of Flatout Bears) spent time working with a Cambodian organisation to help build childcare centres that are supporting up to 80 children. With her passion for the country and it’s people, they sponsor two children giving them life, hope, education, health and a future. I just love that. They live by this quote – “When you get, give. When you learn, teach.”
